The most effective form of advertising is word of mouth. I don't really consider the stuff I've been doing online "marketing", more just throwing stuff out to the community to see what happens and if people discover the music that's great.
That's why i give so much music away free or as a pay what you want download - I'm more interested in building a community rather than trying to get every last penny out of the recordings.
Anyway, an interesting thing has started to happen lately. People have been telling me that they have been talking to there friends(often in pubs) about music and they have both found that had discovered my music completely independently. That's cool because spoken word is how music really spreads - if my mate Kev tells me its good I will at least take a listen because I know its credible and probably good.
That's how bands like the Grateful Dead, Iron Maiden built honest,real and loyal fan bases. Real connections(and great music).
More Twitterchords stuff:
The chord progression Twitter wrote continues to throw up interesting stuff:
This is by Andy Long - a lovely solo bass take on the progression
Andy Long - Twyn Du by mattstevensprojects
This is a score that my friend Matt came up with for the twitter chords - very cool:
